Ethics and Compliance

Core Lab has taken extensive measures to ensure that the services and data the Company provides are of the highest quality and that we adhere to the highest standards of integrity in everything we do. Our Ethics Program ensures that all business operations comply with applicable industry standards and government regulations. Management commitment, ethics training, and internal and third-party audits are integral parts of our Ethics Program.

Code of Ethics and Corporate Responsibility

The Code of Ethics and Corporate Responsibility (the “Code”) covers a wide range of ethical business practices and corporate social responsibility matters. The values we outline in the Code define how we do business. Those values set basic principles to guide all employees and all non-employee Board Directors, in our day-to-day job duties and provide the foundation for how we treat each other, our clients, and our vendors.

Legal and Ethical Business

Obeying the law, both in letter and in spirit, of the locations in which we operate.

Respect for Others

Encouraging trust, support, honesty, accountability, and responsibility.


Integrating social and environmental concerns into our business operations.

Health and Safety

Identifying and managing risks through recognition, evaluation, and education.

Information and Assets

Safeguarding intellectual property rights and personal data.

Employee Reporting Mechanisms

Core Lab fosters a culture where employees can raise workplace problems, complaints, or concerns in a supportive framework and ensures grievances are handled appropriately without fear of retaliation.

Our employee reporting mechanisms have been made available to all employees of the Company.
